KANIGEN® – Uniform & durable surface treatment, guaranteed
No electricity, and no edge effects
Electroless nickel plating is the autocatalytic formation of a nickel-phosphorous alloy on a substrate surface. The chemical reaction occurs on the substrate surface when immersed into a electroless aqueous solution, imparting increased corrosion resistance, durability, and other desirable physical and chemical properties.
KANIGEN® electroless nickel plating applies a completely uniform coating to your parts and equipment, with no edge effects, maintaining your tight tolerances and precision in contrast to highly variable electrolytic processes.
Find the solution tailored to your process
KANIGEN® electroless nickel plating can be applied on a variety of substrates, including iron, steel, copper, brass, bronze, and aluminum. Our large variety of KANIGEN® electroless nickel plating solutions will meet the diverse surface enhancements desired for any application.
